I actually had to replace them after about 3 months - they just stopped working. Could have been a fluke with mine - they worked okay when I had them, though. I would recommend them for cosmetic reasons more than sound quality.

Let's get even more money to PCP! Have you thought of opening up a store with t-shirts, PCP badges, etc where some of the proceeds can go here?

You can find them on Newegg or many custom sites. Here are some of the cables I got: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119485 (note - they're extensions to your existing psu cables). Hope this helps!

These water coolers are designed to be mounted on the top of your cooler. It wouldn't even come close to reaching the front of the case. Typically the front of your case is used for pulling air into your PC. The top is used for pushing air out.

Hey apatel! Thanks for the compliments. I'm gaming quite a bit on this bad boy. So far I'm getting at LEAST 60FPS on all games I play on max settings. What games do you intend to play on your PC?

There were complaints on a few reviews regarding cable management...how do you feel about it's CM?

How do you like the case? I eyed it when I was looking for a new case but decided not to get it.

Yes. On the top part of the case I have the H100i radiator plus two CM 120mm fans. To the right of the rad I have one more 120mm fan.

The PSU leaves room to upgrade. My guess is if he got the blu-ray he will use it.

Awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing it. The third fan on the top had to be put in with zip ties due to the h100i taking up so much space, but it worked! haha

Hey Hernshot! My 140 is the rear fan (the only one by itself). The 120's are all three on top of the build. I believe I have pictures of all of them. I kept the front three fans stock.

If you're over you will be fine with a 760. It's what I use and I love it. I definitely plan on upgrading in a year or two but it's sufficient for sure.

I use this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151264

The color is great with my red/black case and it's pretty cheap.

If you're working with a $1500 budget I think the 770 would be a good choice. Here are some comparison benchmarks: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/854?vs=829

This seems more like a suggested list of parts for critique than a completed parts list. You need a few pictures to show that you've actually done this build.

Yeah this case is too small for what you want inside of it. I would go with something like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/bitfenix-case-bfcprm300wwxkwrp

You're awesome, but I definitely meant that Windows 7 is already included (for free) in our business. This helps too, though! Gives me an even cheaper option if needed.

Yes, windows is included. Great question. We'll be running MS Office, a database software, network drives, etc. Pretty normal day-to-day office operations.

It's a bit easier to split things up to me. 1 SSD for OS and Editing Software 1 HDD for Work Content 1 HDD for Video Content

If a drive goes out your won't lose EVERYTHING, you'll just lose some. The 250D houses 2 HDDs and 2 SSDs (I think).

If you're getting a i 54670 (non-K) you don't need to get a CPU cooler. You can save over $100 there. I would get the i7-4770 for video editing.

You don't need that advance of a motherboard for your purposes imo. You can downgrade there and save some cash.

If you downgrade you can add two 1 TB drives and an SSD. Trust me - the SSD is awesome to have in a work build and will help to secure your PC building in the future. The number one complaint about work computers is that they're slow - make it fast! People will get jealous, you'll be commissioned to build more, and you can charge a small fee to do it ;)

No benefit for gaming. If you're doing editing or rendering then you may want to have 16GB. Just grab 2x4GB sticks (DDR3-1600).

If you're just gaming I think you can: -Downgrade your processor a bit to a 4670K. The i7 isn't necessary for gaming. -Downgrade the ram to 8GB. Find something green to look pretty :) -That can save you almost $300 - use that to upgrade to a 780ti.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "1st build any suggestions?"

In all honesty, for gaming alone, 8GB is more then enough.

Windows 7 is the most popular, though 8.1 is making a name for itself with many people (and still hated by many others lol).

I would have gone with the 4670K for a few dollars more. I think you could have gotten a better CPU cooler for the price, too, but it looks cool. I would have gone with a Z87 mobo for the price too.

Overall not too bad though. I'm guessing you'll have a lot of fun with it. Hope you enjoy it!

It's not mechanical, unfortunately, but it's a great keyboard. The side macros are super handy, I love the little finger fan, and it looks great. If you need mechanical go with the Corsair. If not then this one is pretty great.

No worries. A micro-atx board typically has more connections (sata, pci-e, etc) and fits better in a mid tower. It really just looks better, too, and helps you utilize the space in your tower.

Any reason you're going with a micro-atx mobo with a mid tower?
